"Great location, great wine, great food, who could ask for more"
A little hard to find at first, but this great villa in this sleepy little village in the middle of Rioja Alta could not be a more pictureque or wonderful location. You have to "eat in" one evening. The food was great, including the breakfasts.

The hotel is in a good location only a short walk from the town centre. Secure parking is available in an underground car park (for an additional fee). The staff were very friendly and helpful and one member of staff spoke fluent English. The room was clean although the A/C didn't seem to work - we didn't complain as we didn't need it during our stay. The breakfast was excellent although we weren't as impressed with our evening meal - however there are plenty of other eating options within a short distance of the hotel.
I visited Haro, travelling alone, for a much needed short break over May Day and to visit some bodegas in a professional capacity. It's an easy and scenic bus ride of an hour from Bilbao. There are about six buses a day from Termibus in Bilbao which is where the airport bus starts/finishes (every 20 minutes from mid April until September) so ultra convenient for a short trip. Unless you are into bar hopping, eating pinxos, tasting wine and meeting winemakers there is not that much to keep you here more than 24 hours. But if like me that's your thing, then it's great. The Hotel is in the centre of town and an easy walk (if you don't have mobility problems) from the Barrio de la Estación for some famous Bodegas.The surrounding countryside and small towns are picturesque and interesting so if you had a car it would be a good base for touring. The Hotel is clean and comfortable, it was pretty quiet in a street facing room on the second floor too considering it is so central. The staff were really nice and keen to help. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. But remember, it is 3* not 4 or 5 so if you need a minibar, gym, concierge service, trouser press etc you might want to look elsewhere (although I am sure the staff would do their best to rustle something up for you). Hairdryers are available on request.
